  • The BCS playoff picture over the course of the next five years just got a whole bunch hazier today.

    This shakes things up, bigtime.

  • Instantly a top 2 or 3 coach in the Pac-12. Love how after the dust all settles, we ended up on top. Great hire.

  • Yeah, this most definitely is the real deal:

    ESPN is flashing it as breaking news scrolling across the bottom of the tv at this very second we write.

    God bless Chris Petersen and his family.

  • Would be interesting to hear what Warren Moon, Michael Jackson, Tui, Mark Brunell, Corey Dillon, Lawyer Milloy and Damon Huard — among a whole bunch of others — have to say about this hire.

    Bet they're diggin' it.

    We all know Brock Huard can't wait to talk about this today on ESPN's College Football Live.

    He's walking into a situation with 3 top 20 recruiting classes (or so I've read), he better have success right away.

  • I'm excited....I really am.

    But I have a legit question - How do we know Petersen is going to be different than Koetter and Hawkins?

  • Peterson being Hawkins offensive coordinator was a big reason for his success at Boise State.

    Koetter didn't have near his level of success at Boise State so I am not sure they are comparable.

    Everyone at my work is scared they will promote him to HC now. I am too.

    Here's a story for you. I went to Cabo San Lucas a few years ago and was staying at this resort. The wife and I were sitting in a hot tub and an older couple joined us. The guy starts talking to me and asks where we're from and we say Boise. He says he's a CBS radio guy in Vegas and he really likes BSU and then he tells me he used to play for Oregon State and he was on the only Beaver team to beat USC & OJ Simpson. Then he says he's a booster and he gets to help OSU interview coaches. Back when OSU resigned Reilly, they interviewed Hawkins. He said Hawkins was a terrible interview and all Hawkins kept talking about was his OC Petersen. Petersen was the guy that made his offense run.

    As a courtesy, because I had just made another post on my old thread with the poll, and didn't want it to be at the top of the board consequently.

    He's been the playcaller here for the last two years and he's wildly predictable. Watching the games you can guess exactly what play he's going to call probably 50% of the time. He doesn't ever seem to learn or adapt anything. Maybe given time he could improve but I haven't seen anything from him that makes me excited.

    I'll add, I grew up a Husky (lived in kent until I was 21) then I moved to Boise to go to BSU and have stayed here. I'm a fan of both teams. But if prince goes to UW, that's not good. I'd prefer Pete called his own plays at UW. It makes a huge difference.

    Love the hire. I didn't think Mora was the right guy (as I said before he extended with UCLA). Unbelievable how this all worked out. I'm pumped.

    He could have been, his success so fast at UCLA and the lambasting he got for his tenure as the Seahawks head coach probably soured things a bit here. Not so much his allegiance to the Huskies, but it's all of us fans. He's a Mora and they seem to hold onto things a while.

  • One thing that seems high in Petersons desires is being able to be low key and out of the spotlight, this is a perfect place for that. James was the Dawgfather but talk about being able to stay on the fringes of media access he was great at it, closed practices and total football focus. Not sure is Peterson will go to that degree after the Sark opened everything up era but it's easy to be un noticed here. Especially with the Seahawks in the limelight now.

    That's my point he agreed to this last night but didn't want his players at Boise finding out on ESPN the way thst UW players found out Sark was. Then Sark says he didn't interview. Blah blah blah. The way Peterson handled it with BSU and UW was 100% better than SC and Sark handled theirs.

  • Love the hire - great coach. Not as great of a recruiter but if he can keep some of the current asst. staff, they are known as really good recruiters and can help the process. The Huskies just got significantly better without firing a sitting coach. Thank you USC!!
